Piety requires us to honor truth above our friends.
There are only two people who can tell you the truth about yourself - an enemy who has lost his temper and a friend who loves you dearly.
Then I despair... I remember that all through history, the way of truth and love has always won. There have been murderers and tyrants, and for a time they can seem invincible. But in the end they always fall. Think of it always.
I appeal from your customs. I must be myself. I cannot break myself any longer for you, or you. If you can love me for what I am, we shall be the happier. If you cannot, I will still seek to deserve that you should. I will not hide my tastes or aversions. I will so trust that what is deep is holy, that I will do strongly before the sun and moon whateverinly rejoices me, and the heart appoints. If you are noble, I will love you; if you are not, I will not hurt you and myself by hypocritical attentions. If you are true, but not in the same truth with me, cleave to your companions; I will seek my own.
To tell you the truth, in my work, love is always in opposition to the elements. It creates dilemmas. It brings in suffering.
When everyone around you is doing all this incredible pirate acting and you're having to sort of play the straight guy and move the story forward, you kind of want to be doing some of that pirate ripping it up stuff, but in truth, to be a part of that project is what I love.
The practice mirror is to be used for the correction of faults, not for a love affair, and the figure you watch should not become your dearest friend.
Yesterday we obeyed kings and bent our necks before emperors. But today we kneel only to truth, follow only beauty, and obey only love.
Anyone entrusted with power will abuse it if not also animated with the love of truth and virtue, no matter whether he be a prince, or one of the people.
I am amazed about how everyone wants to know about my love life. They whisper to me, 'Tell me the truth? Is it true?' Who cares? Because we have this job, we are to say to everybody what we do, or with whom we sleep? It's a bit absurd, but that's why everybody lies so much.
I left in love, in laughter, and in truth, and wherever truth, love and laughter abide, I am there in spirit.
Wine comes in at the mouth And love comes in at the eye; That's all we shall know for truth Before we grow old and die.
This Divine truth flows into heaven from the Lord from His Divine love.
I do not think there is any thrill that can go through the human heart like that felt by the inventor as he sees some creation of the brain unfolding to success... Such emotions make a man forget food, sleep, friends, love, everything.
I have always loved truth so passionately that I have often resorted to lying as a way of introducing it into the minds which were ignorant of its charms.
I love doing normal things - movies, shopping, going out with friends, writing, reading, taking hot bubble baths - that's a big one for relaxation. I also love to go to art and history museums.
Of life's two chief prizes, beauty and truth, I found the first in a loving heart and the second in a laborer's hand.
We all have a childhood dream that when there is love, everything goes like silk, but the reality is that marriage requires a lot of compromise.
I love the name of honor, more than I fear death.
I tore myself away from the safe comfort of certainties through my love for truth - and truth rewarded me.
The best part about being friends with your parents is that no matter what you do, they have to keep loving you.
Rather than love, than money, than fame, give me truth.
The more we love our friends, the less we flatter them; it is by excusing nothing that pure love shows itself.
What we have in us of the image of God is the love of truth and justice.
Be Impeccable With Your Word. Speak with integrity. Say only what you mean. Avoid using the word to speak against yourself or to gossip about others. Use the power of your word in the direction of truth and love.
